It was funny. It was cute. It was a special moment... but this moment has gone on long enough, thank-you-very-much. He's a lurking menace, a tree terror. We can't put up lights, never mind ornaments! He is repelled by the smell of mint, like freshly brushed teeth breath, so we are going to give the tree a healthy spritz of peppermint. Hopefully he'll go back to climbing the walls, and leave the tree alone!
